Save Yourself Time and Hassle with Deodex to Odex Converter

To Odex or Deodex? That is the question. Depending on whom you ask, each option is preferable to the other. In reality, both have their own unique pros and cons. While a Deodexed ROM will undoubtedly be much more receptive to customization, an Odexed ROM may feel a little snappier under certain circumstances. If you’re not already familiar with the difference between the two, check out XDA Elite Recognized Developer Adam Outler’s comprehensive explanation.

As I’ve already mentioned, Deodexing a ROM makes it much easier to customixe, and many themes simply will not work on an Odexed ROM. Making modifications to an Odexed file requires a tedious and time consuming process of Deodexing, modifying, and then Reodexing. XDA Recognised Developer M_J_Nazari has come up with an ingenious little script that should help to make this a thing of the past. To sum it up as simply as possible, it allows you to use Deodexed files with an Odexed framework by automatically converting them for you.

Simply place the edited files into the appropriate folder and run the script. The files will then be pushed to the device, and you can check the results from the log file. The tool currently only works with framework JAR files, but will no doubt help to save a great deal of time for those who need it. Check out the original thread for more information.

Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
